News has been snaking its way through Twitter that Jamie King (left; Mother’s Day) is set to star in her third slasher remake.
Bloody Disgusting discovered that King, who toplined both Lionsgate My Bloody Valentine 3D and Anchor Bay’s Mother’s Day redos, will also be featured in Anchor Bay’s forthcoming Silent Night, a new horror pic from The Genre Company and Inferno’s Ember Productions.
In the film, “A local police department’s search for the killer Santa Claus terrorizing their remote Midwestern town on Christmas Eve.”
Malcolm McDowell will play Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action.
Under the Bed and Automaton Transfusion helmer Steven C. Miller will direct from a script by exec producer Jayson Rothwell. The pic is a loose remake of TriStar’s 1984 film Silent Night, Deadly Night which went on to spawn four sequels.
With principal photography scheduled for next month, Anchor Bay plans to unspool the project worldwide this holiday season.
